Café Gio, St. George's

36 Water Street
St. George's
Bermuda GE05
Tel: 441 297 1307's insider take:

Fearing the cruise ship throngs, locals and discerning travelers usually avoid St. George's Harbour like the plague. Thankfully, the area now has an oasis where tourist-weary diners can escape. Café Gio has the best piece of waterfront real estate in town, so alfresco dining is a must. The menu is pricey and the service little more than adequate, but the Mediterranean cuisine combined with spectacular views make up for it. Start with the Bermuda fish chowder or the calamari with mango salsa; then follow up with the grilled local rockfish or pan-seared wahoo with coconut curry sauce. For dessert, try one of pastry chef Glenda Wee's creative interpretations of molten chocolate cake or crème brûlée.

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays noon to 2:30 pm and 5:30 to 10 pm. Closed January and February.
